Chest Wall Reconstruction and Rib Plating

Objectives: Capture a relatively basic surgery and focus on the set of surgical tools by showing very intricate detailing.

Production Log It’s always interesting to learn about the surrounding circumstances of a surgery (without violating HIPPA privacy). In many ways, the more we know, the better prepared we can be. The patient had been hit by a car several weeks prior to this surgery. With severely displaced broken ribs, he had been enduring a tremendous amount of pain. Reminiscent of the erector sets of my childhood, the surgeon rebuilt the young man’s chest with artificial supports, so the patient may lead a more normal life.
